Improving the Science of Rehabilitation, Disability, and Independent Living
Membership in the DRRC is open to all non-profit organizations with an interest in disability, independent living, and rehabilitation research.
The Disability and Rehabilitation Research Coalition (DRRC) is a coalition of national non-profit organizations committed to improving the science of medical rehabilitation, disability, and independent living. The DRRC seeks to maximize the return on the federal investment in the field with the goal of improving the ability of Americans with disabilities to live and function as independently as possible. The coalition plays a leadership role in increasing and leveraging federal resources devoted to medical rehabilitation, disability, and independent living research.
